Three men and a monkey

No, just kidding. It's really 2 kids and a dog. That's what it takes to get a picture of how big my bag is pre-felting.

Parker and Brodie can both fit inside, and Alex was helping to hold up the sides. The kids thought this was hilarious. They asked why I could possibly want a bag that big. Wait til they see it after I shrink it! The joys of felting.

The Bearfoot socks are finished too. I cannot tell you how much I love this yarn. I can't wait to wear these socks.

Pattern: More Fun Than Cables Socks
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Pheasant
These took me a couple of weeks to complete. Normally I think this pattern would go much quicker, but with the musical and costume stuff, I haven't had enough time to knit!

Hopefully I will have a much smaller bag to show you tomorrow, and a couple of other things too. (If I get through that giant pile of regular laundry, eeek!)

Looking forward to see the bag after it has been felted! :)

I sent you email regarding the translation of my Södera Socks' pattern. The pattern will be translated in English in the near future, I just don't know yet who'll be doing the translating, I or someone else.

That is a BIG bag!

Your socks came out great. I love Bearfoot too. It makes a very soft and warm sock.

New to your blog and maybe you know this... MC barefoot IS said to be machine washable, and it is, but after just a few washes, that mohair kicks in and obscures knitting patterns. I'm not sure you'll see your lovely cables. Not sayin' it not nice sock yarn. And I have more barefoot to knit. But I'll be keeping the knitting simpler, if it's not going to show...
